dough. the plan to make him the highest paid giant, ever. good evening, i'm julie watts, liz has the night off. >> and i'm ken bastida. north koreaen military chanting in support of their leader as he orders his military to prepare for a missile attack. tensions began earlier this month when they imposed new sanctions on north korea. that was after the country conducted a missile attack. after b2 bombers roared overhead and into the area for a bombing drill with south korea. the white house believes that there is more bluffing going on here than actual plans for war. as kpix5's allen martin tells us, what washington worries about most is a small attack on south korea that explodes into a much larger conflict.
>> north koreaen soldiers cleared today. chanting, death to u.s. imperialism in a highly cooer cooreographed display. missiles targeting the united states. there's no evidence a north koreaen missile could reach the u.s. mainland. highlight the movement, which patrols pacific waters. and a state run news report announced the north koreaens are ready to target several targets, including u.s. bases in guam, south korea, and hawaii. north koreaen is common every spring when the united states and south korea engage in military exercises. but u.s. officials concede there is no way of knowing exactly what kim will do or when. >> the best theory is that north korea wants to scare the united states, china, or russia
into lowering sanctions. nobody really thinks that north korea could hit the united states. the biggest threat is to south korea and japan. and u.s. bases there. here's a live look at downtown oakland where the temperature hit nearly 80 degrees today. paul says big changes are coming for this easter weekend. paul. >> i'll tell you what, we will see a big dip in temperatures coming in over the weekend. down to the 60s and then we're going to look at radar. already the evening, kpix5 is tracking some showers, just skirting the coastline. you may get a shower or two, but these showers will be moving inland. the same catalyst for the very warm and humid weather today. that's off to our west. will be the same storm system that slides into the bay area over the weekend and impact you
both tomorrow and for easter sunday. a whole lot of cloud cover out there tomorrow morning with scattered showers. as the weekend wears on, not only will the threat of rain increase, but the threat of thunderstorms. we'll talk more about the thunderstorm risk and how much rain we expect this weekend. >> all right, looking forward to that, thanks, paul. several shots fired in east oakland this afternoon. at least one causing flying debris that injured a ten-year- old girl. the bullets flew about 5:00 near the corner of 82nd avenue and 8th street. the girl was treated at the hospital. she will be okay. it's unclear who fired the shot. >> a one-year-old boy who was injured by a bullet fragment is? good condition tonight. doctors in oakland successfully removed the fragment from elijah's neck. the boy was one of two people injured yesterday when a gunman opened fire. police say he was targeting a bicyclist, but a bullet fragment also struck the child inside an apartment.
that bicyclist is expected to be okay. the gunman is still on the loose. police are offering a $25,000 reward. buster posey is 26 years old. tonight he is a rich man. a very, very rich man. the giants signed him to a nine- year contract worth, wait for it, $167 million. it is the giant's most expensive contract ever. >> the giants community, i don't see how i can play here and not spend your career here. >> the multimillion dollar deal includes a club option for the 2022 season. that could raise the value to $186 million. california sets the standard of reducing pollution, now the rest of the nation could soon follow. today the obama administration released its newest antipollution plan to reduce sulfur and gasoline.
but the epa says it would cost drivers not only at the gas pump, but also add to the price of a new car. cbs reporter, randall pinkston on what our tough standards will mean for the rest of the country. >> the environmental protection agency wants gasoline make makers to clean up their act and lower sulfur with every fillup. >> that role by itself will have the effectiveness of taking 33 million cars off the road. >> the white house says a new standard will lead to cleaner air, cutting billions in healthcare costs, and saving as many as 2400 lives a year. >> dollar value of these health benefits will be over $23 billion of health benefits annually to the american public. >> the epa says the new rules will add a penny to the cost of a gallon of gasoline, but the oil industry says it's more like 8 cents a gallon or an extra $1.50 every time you fill
up. gasoline is going to go up anyway. it seems to. why not spend more money if it's going to mean cleaner air? >> it's going to mean cleaner air, we are already doing it. >> rayola is an economist with the american petroleum institute. in the last decade, the industry has spent billions billions to lower sulfur emissions. these could be lower. >> greenhouse gas emissions will go up because they have to use more energy intensive equipment to comply with the regulation. >> the auto industry supports the new standards, the epa hopes to have in place by 2017. in washington, randall pinkston, kpix5. >> the new epa rules are the first of many similar regulations that could add more than 60 cents to a gallon of gas. >> it's a rare for palo alto. a home under a million dollars just hit the market and it's being called a bargain. in fact, it's the only house
under the million dollar mark in the area. kpix5's kit doe is outside that home on park boulevard to show us what nearly a million dollars can buy you. kit. >> well, ken, not a whole lot. to borrow one of those, this place is cozy, but it is a starter home and because we are in palo alto, they'll have to readjust your expectations. >> 3507 park boulevard is the most affordable single family home on the market in palo alto right now. and it's no wonder just three bedrooms, one bathroom, squeezed into a thousand square feet. no family room, no air- conditioning, and higher crime than most parts of the city. what's more, the backyard right up against the train. up to 86 trains speeding by day and night. a house like this should be a bargain. >> it is listed at $9.98,
which is very low. >> $998,000. >> that's right. >> almost a million $s. >> that's almost a million and a bargain. >> in fact, it's the only single family home on the market listed for under $1 million. michael with daily on realty says despite all the drawbacks, you are paying for the palo alto brand. >> schools, business climate, prestige. the infrastructure is great. the location, weather, everything comes together very well for people who get the opportunity to live here. >> sky high prices are the norm, so listing it for less than a million is actually an effective marketing technique. because it draws in more potential buyers and it works. last year, just 25 homes listed for under a million dollars. the majority sold for well over the asking price. >> and then once the potential buyers come in, they'll see past the flaw and they'll fall in love with the charm. and getting them in the door is important. if it's priced too high, people won't come and see it.
>> and so the guess is that this house probably will end up going for around $1.1 million. now some of the neighbors tell us they bought their homes in the 1950s for about $15,000. >> yeah. you call it cozy. charming. i always love that. charming. >> they definitely know how to word things to play up the positives and play down the negatives. >> we'll be laughing now. kit doe in palo alto, thanks, kit. >> one of the greatest shows to grace the bay area could soon be canceled. the bickering that grounded the blue angels. i can't imagine not helping somebody in that situation. >> people saw it happen, but only one man jumped into action and now he's being called a hero. >> and a little door makes big
